EU updates Libya & Terrorism sanctions


In June, the UN Security Council expanded its sanctions on illegal oil exports from Libya to cover vessels loading, transporting, or discharging petroleum, including crude oil and refined petroleum products, for export from Libya. The EU has now implemented those new measures, along with the UN’s listing of the vessel Capricorn pursuant to the sanctions.  See Regulation 2017/1419 amending Regulation (EU) 2016/44 and Decision 2017/1427 amending Decision (CFSP) 2015/1333, and Implementing Regulation 2017/1423 amending Regulation 2016/44 and Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2017/1429 implementing Decision (CFSP) 2015/1333.


The EU has undertaken its mandatory review of its non-ISIL & Al-Qaida terrorism sanctions listings, and determined that all listed people and entities should continue to be subject to the sanctions.  See Implementing Regulation 2017/1420 implementing Regulation 2580/2001 and Council Decision 2017/1426 updating Common Position 2001/931/CFSP and repealing Decision (CFSP) 2017/154.
